1862 · The Dakota Conflict/War

The Dakota War was an armed conflict between the United States and several bands of Dakota Native Americans. It began along the Minnesota River four years after Minnesota was admitted as a state. The Dakota made attacks on hundreds of settlers, which resulted in their deaths. A military tribunal sentenced 303 Dakota men to death for their crimes but 264 of them were exonerated. The remaining 38 were apart of a mass hanging on December 26 that same year. It was the largest mass execution in United States history.
